This is how you should be storing your LEGO® collection

Turn dreary clean-up time into a fun activity for everyone with these amazing LEGO® storage pieces from ROOM Copenhagen.

There’s no question that LEGO® sets are an absolute essential in every household. But, ask anyone who’s stepped on a stray LEGO® brick and they’ll tell you just how important it is to pick up those sneaky little pieces.

Storing LEGO® bricks and other pieces certainly isn’t as fun as building with them, or at least it wasn’t until ROOM Copenhagen introduced us to its amazing LEGO® storage units. Using the LEGO® brick blueprint, ROOM has extended the LEGO® experience to lunchboxes, drawers and large storage boxes, turning clean-up time into an awesome game of “build the oversized LEGO® bricks”.

SHOP LEGO® STORAGE

Not only are these bricks proportionate to the LEGO® two-by-two and four-by-two bricks, they are buildable just like your normal LEGO® bricks, making them that much more appealing to your average LEGO® fan. Colours that are currently in stock at Kiddiwinks include blue, red and yellow. 

As if oversized LEGO® bricks and lunchboxes weren’t enough, ROOM has also introduced the iconic LEGO® minifigure head with the trademark LEGO® smile. Open up the top and store your odds and ends, or simply use it as a cute decor  accessory.  You can even use the large version as a fruit bowl, as per a suggestion by ROOM!

The LEGO® Iconic Storage Head makes a quirky fruit bowl.

“Though made first and foremost with children in mind, our products are sure to please parents as well as any adults with a soft spot for the LEGO® brand,” explains ROOM on their website.

The storage pieces are created with a strong focus on quality and functionality, making them ideal to add to your home. The items are BPA and Phthalate free, and no PVC is used.

Take your LEGO® adventures one step further with this awesome range from ROOM and finally get the family to clean up after themselves!

An a-MAZE-ing LEGO Idea

After the heart-stopping adventures of Maze Runner, there’s really no reason why anyone wouldn’t want a go at creating their own maze from LEGO®, right? The LEGO® Ideas Maze is great, not only because it was created by LEGO® fan designer Jason Allemann from Canada and then selected by LEGO® fans, but also because it’s customisable. Yes! You can build your own maze to challenge yourself and friends, and there’s the awesome medieval-style maze which includes assorted buildable cottages, archway and castle.

Shop for the LEGO® Ideas Maze here and watch Jason talk about his design here:
